Alright Jerks, although Dada Life literally brought the roof down yesterday, Westcott Theatre is up for another show. This time, we welcome Matt and Kim on October 4th, at 8 pm. I personally love the musical talents of this indie/dance/punk duo. I first discovered Matt and Kim in Brooklyn, NYC from the popular television series, “Gossip Girl“. The group is made up of Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino. The first song of theirs I heard was “Daylight”, which was featured on a recent Bacardi commercial. (Good music, good taste…obviously)
As corny as it sounds, I listened to the song constantly during my summer vacation in Maine, and mainly because they mentioned the state itself in the lyrics. Be sure to also check out “Cameras”, another one of their better songs. The easy lyrics and feel good beat just paints a mental picture goofing off with your friends.
Their new album is titled “Lightning”, with “Let’s Go” being the first single. Check out their YouTube page (http://www.youtube.com/user/mattandkim) for some light-hearted and fun videos. You can definitely tell they love producing simple music that just makes them and everyone else around them happy. And yes, they are a couple. Follow Matt & Kim on Twitter @mattandkim for updates!
